I enjoyed attending NGHS. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of clubs and extracurriculars. I attended both NGHS and county-rival SGHS, and academic-wise, Northern excelled, but Southern had a more "social" scene. I loved Northern, and if I still lived in the area, my children would be attending here, without a doubt.
